Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mesmero with sound clips and images.
Franchise: X-Men

Mesmero is one of the various evil mutants in the X-Men series in which his comic book debut was in Uncanny X-Men #49 in October of 1968. Mesmero's real name is Vincent (though he has no last name) and is a mutant with the psionic power to mentally control the minds of others (in which he can even control telepaths but controlling those without psychic abilities is a lot easier). While Mesmero's origin has altered a bit over the years he is known for using his mind control abilities to steal money when he works alone and Magneto has used to him to control various powerful mutants (some of his most known victims are those such as Jean Grey and Lorna Dane A.K.A Polaris).   Mesmero has occasionally had nicer roles in the past but he is generally known as a Villain whom has served other people in which he has the most history with Magneto and the Weapon X program.

Today on the X-Men VC section we take a look at this mind-controlling miscreant... MESMERO! Now let us begin this show here...

Ron Halder- Ron's somewhat nasally voice (but this time with a bit of an accent) does work with the show's take on the role rather well. Not too mention on how Ron's performance did have a rather sinister feel to it as well and is a good example of Ron's handiwork and of the voice work in the show.

Dwight Schultz- While it did seem a little strange at first on how Dwight's voice for the role is a little flamboyant but it does work with how he was depicted in this show. But still Dwight seems to be playing Mesmero as an evil hypnotist with a bit of a dramatic flair in which he does a pretty good job at that and is a pretty good example of his voice work.

Overall both of these guys are good but while I will go with Ron Halder more Dwight was good as well.

Ron's mystical and sinister tone is wonderfully done. His delivery is solid and he comes off as really creepy but at the same time shows that he has a lot of power I feel.

Dwight is much more bombastic and flamboyant in the performance, but he's still incredibly entertaining in his own right. It's not even close to Ron's portrayal, but Dwight was entertaining and sounded like he was having a lot of fun.

This VC falls under which version do you prefer exactly, and both are good in their own right, but I think I prefer Halder a teeny bit more.

I'd say for a future VA, Rene Auberjonois

Going with Ron Halder. He is somewhat unnerving which fits for a guy who can control minds. I do like Dwight Schultz, he's quite fun and also fits a creep who controls minds.

Dwight Schultz sounded way less generic.

Dwight Schultz was way too silly for my taste. Ron Halder was more serious and sometimes creepy.

I'm gonna go with Ron Halder for Mesmero as he was creepier.
